I am not sure exactly what to say, I have never wrote anything like this before.
I had my second child a little girl Nov 2008, in Feb 2009 I had the Essure procedure done. I was told that it was the new thing that most women were opting for, it was less evasive than a tubal ligation, so I choose it. I was not told of any risks or side effects of having this done. I have asked my doctor concerning the Essure and possible side effects, she said there was nothing to worry about. Pretty much dismissed me and my concerns, so with that I felt like crap and ashamed I had even asked. I have never been terribly over weight, but now, no matter what I try nothing helps. I exercise and eat right but it gets me no where. At different times and occasions my limbs go numb, which disturbs me. I told my doctor and had a nerve test done, from the results I am having trouble with my lumbar spinal area. I have had an ultrasound to see if they were still in place, they are still there and nothing out of the ordinary. But I am allergic to nickel, when I put nickel earrings in, I am ripping them out within a couple minutes. My headaches are more common than they ever were along with almost uncontrollable moodiness. I am not one that likes to complain about things, I try to deal with it and go on. It is hard to ignore that most of the risks listed are symptoms of how I feel. I know that something is off about my body, but to get someone to hear me. To know that I am not making it up and being validated for the way I feel, and to know where to go from here.
